Behind the Blog
It’s been raining all week here in Houston. I’m sure you’ve seen the massive flooding all across Texas on the news. We live in a Northwest suburb of Houston and fortunately, our neighborhood has escaped flooding. Others around us have not been so lucky.
In spite of the dreary weather, there have been some bright spots.
The Master Bath Is Almost Done:
Here are some before and after pictures of one of the vanity areas.
I have SO MUCH more storage now. When I put all of our “stuff” back in the bathroom, I discovered that I had 5 deodorants! I kept buying them because I thought I was out. I wasn’t out – the bathroom cabinets were just so chock full, I couldn’t find what I had. Has that ever happened to you? I am loving my light fixture and the mirror. Mirror from Birch Lane.
Fun With The Grandkids
Parker finished 2nd grade this week.
He received an award for getting all A’s on every report card this year. We are so proud of him. To celebrate, we had both the grandkids spend the night last night and had so much fun with them.
What I Cooked:
I made Salmon Provencal from SimplyRecipes.com. It’s just baked salmon with this yummy tomato relish that has fresh herbs. The recipe says to blanch and peel the tomatoes first. Don’t let that throw you – it’s no big deal. We had enough for Friday night and then made Salmon Salad for lunch on Saturday. Easy enough for a weeknight. Fancy enough for company.
What I’m Wearing
Jennifer from A Well Styled Life did a review recently on tops by Covered Perfectly. They make tops designed for women over 40 that are super soft, comfortable and cover all the places you want covered. I went shopping yesterday and wore one of their red 3/4 sleeve tops with my new vest from SteinMart that I picked up for $20. Covered Perfectly has free shipping, free returns and when I bought mine they were running a sale – buy 2, get 1 free.
